Sheikh Mohammed Mutumba, an Imam in Uganda, has been hit with the shock of his life after discovering that his wife of 2 weeks is a man.
Sources say the Imam had wedded his ‘wife’ later identified as Swabullah Nabukeera after they met in a mosque and then he decided to take the relationship to the next level.
The couple who did not have sexual intercourse before marriage also spent two weeks of their marriage, without enjoying conjugal rights as the “bride” claimed she was menstruating.
Mr Mutumba said after his wife claimed to be in her menses, he became patient and waited for her to get better.
However, Nabukeera’s luck ran out after Mr Mutumba’s neighbour claimed that his newly wedded wife had jumped over a wall and stole their television set and clothes.
Mr Mutumba rents a two-roomed house where they had been staying with Nabukeera.
However, the wall that separates the two rental rooms did not reach the iron sheets.
The neighbor reported the case at Kayunga Police Station before detectives were dispatched to arrest Ms Nabukeera.
“It was when he was been searched by a female officer that the suspect had stacked clothes in the bra to hoodwink that they were breasts. On further search, we discovered that the suspect had male genitals,” said Mugera.
During interrogations, Nabukeera revealed that his real name is Richard Tumushabe and that he duped Mutumba so as to get his money.
He was charged with impersonation, theft and obtaining goods by false pretense.
Nuuru Nabukeera, Tumushabe’s alleged aunt, was also arrested and admitted that Mutumba had paid dowry including two goats, two bags of sugar, a carton of salt and a Koran.
She claimed that she did not know her ‘niece’ was male as she got to know him when he was already an adult.
